Complete David Douglas Scots video using Windows Movie Maker

Here's my completed 26 second video.

Sign up for the class Moodle Account with a personal email address. 

Select a topic that you want to create a Digital Story about.  Examples of topics are:

Architecture, Art, Basketball, Civil War, Dog Breeds, History of Oregon, National Parks, etc. 
(Any digital story on Pokemon will be immediately rejected).

Title slide at the beginning.
A credit slide at the end which will contain a link to where every photo was found and in the order in which they appear.
Transitions between every picture or slide.
Effects on half of the slides
At least two titles on top of pictures.  Make sure they can be read.  They do not need to be on the picture the entire time.
The use of music.  If you want to bring in music that you own instead of using free music, that is fine. 
The music needs to fade out at the end of the project.
You need to provide a narrative throughout the project.  You can do this on the pictures or title slides in between the pictures.  Your choice.

You must have your pictures downloaded 5 points

You must have a list of where you got each photo from.  This will go on your last slide by the way. 15 points
